I'm sorry, but it's WRONG WRONG WRONG! It's just a big joke surely, I keep hearing friends saying how comfy they are... it amazes me!

If your 18mnths old, YES, if you're over 18, NO fecking way!

bloody ridiculous

Understand that there is no cold "gap" in the middle, but...

- surely it must feel weird not having something kind of "tight around" or "sitting" on ur waist? I think i'd feel naked without that feeling on my waist.

- zip against ur skin would feel hard, cold, or just even an annoying sensation?!?

- and of course the whole toileting hoo-ha.

Dont think theyre quite for me!

I saw a woman in the pub wearing one yesterday. She wasn't even collecting for charity. I nearly collapsed in amazement. WTAF!

I'm with you all the way mmeCholet .ok on my 12 yr old but only just.

I genuinely don't think they're acceptable on anyone old enough to dress themselves. confused

Primark have sold out of men's ones! I wanted a penguin, snowman, reindeer or something but nada. Every man in the UK is getting one for Christmas, apparently.

There were loads of women's ones left if you have a change of heart OP wink

Mine has a zip round the arse for when you need the loo. I have bought it only for when we go camping and there is frost outside the tent and have promised dh I will never wear it at home. Tbh it is very comfy but the static it produces is a bit scary.

There was a man ahead of me in the petrol station wearing a Superman onsie recently. It was most perturbing and worrying when DD said he looked 'awesome'.

I'm with you OP... No self respecting woman should be seen dead in a onesie, in or out of the house. They are hideous! They are for babies! I especially dislike the animal style ones that come complete with ears. What's suddenly wrong with a pair of plain pyjamas? Don't do it ladies!!!

I have seen bunches of teens in a bar with this look.

Great, I love it when people dress really badly. t makes me look good and elegant and even glam!

So do wear them, so I can look like a super model next to you.

I went to an informal drinks party a few weeks ago and a married couple were both wearing them shock. Twas freaking awful.

Because I get cold in bed some nights in spite of having a 17.5 tog duvet. Onesie and thermal vest for me! So cosy. It is a bit cold to strip off for a wee but not slow, as mine has a zip, easy access! I haven't worn it outside yet but have been so tempted in the morning.

Mine is this one: Fair Isle Onesie

Hobbitation I am interested in the sound of your 17.5 tog duvet. Where did you get it?

I don't do onesies, even less so after that adult baby programme on channel 4 last night.

So pleased I'm not the only one who thinks they are the work of the devil or some lunatic in a retail marketing dept having a laugh

i wear a frumpy fleece round the house when I am cleaning Kiki - go for it.

I am tempted by the Onesies for a laugh but as long as you only wear it indoors and don't answer the door it's fine IMO.

I was thinking about this a while sexualisation of children with bras, heels etc. and adults as dressing as in onesies and play suits.

It's not for me.

lowercase Fri 14-Dec-12 17:51:43

Dressing as babies

I.Just. Couldn't.

Just bought my 21 year old daughter a onesie - I am assuming she will only wear it to keep warm in her student house! That said, I saw a couple of students in them in a motorway services recently!

extracrunchy Fri 14-Dec-12 18:55:59

Cos they are COSY.

brighthair Fri 14-Dec-12 19:55:03

Because my top rides up in bed and my back gets cold
I wear a cotton one with buttons and nothing digs in, with a vest underneath. But then I also sleep with socks, 2 x 13.5 tog duvets and a blanket so I might just be a wimp grin
My partner is highly entertained by the fact I need all this when he sleeps with a sheet and naked blush

Helltotheno Fri 14-Dec-12 21:07:45

Love mine for around the house and love that you can more or less go commando underneath cos it's so shapeless. Only thing is I can't stand not to wear something on my feet over socks so I lobbed off the feet and wear slippers.

Wouldn't be seen dead in one outside though..

BlameItOnTheChoirOfAngels Fri 14-Dec-12 21:10:59

I'm wearing mine now, its ace. sooooo comfy. its not sexy, but oh, its ;lush.

thenightsky Fri 14-Dec-12 21:12:37

I saw a number of people wearing them in tesco today hmm

MrsMiniversCharlady Fri 14-Dec-12 21:16:26

I'm very tempted to get one for when I'm on call - I can pull it on over my scrubs and away I go grin In the middle of the night the last thing I need is to faff around with jeans and jumpers.

Lafaminute Fri 14-Dec-12 22:09:52

I can see how they may be comfy and warm but I think that just because my husband still (says he) stills finds me attractive after 20 years I'm not sure I'd care to push my luck and see how he feels when I toddle about in a babygro.....certainly it would not induce me to strip his onesie off in a fit of passion. UGH.
